WBEZ: Workers Log COVID Complaints on the Job
Dr. Linda Forst, senior associate dean and director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Center at the UIC School of Public Health, told WBEZ the key to addressing workplace complaints of unsafe work conditions lies in social distancing, masks, paid sick leave and healthcare coverage. Thousands of Chicago workers have filed complaints, with McDonald's restaurants featuring frequently among the complaints.
Workplaces can be made safe. If workplaces are made safe, then people can go to work, and they’re not going to get sick there.Director, World Health Organization Collaborating Center|
